Ever imagined what it would be like to live in a world with flying cars?
A new competition is challenging entrants to share their ideas for innovative technologies which could transform how we live in the future.
Launched by dot.rural - the University of Aberdeen institute which conducts research into the way digital technologies could transform rural communities, society and business – the myTech Challenge is open to adults and children of all ages.
Entrants are asked to log on to www.digital-rural.org/mytech and submit ideas for technologies under four themes – healthcare, transport, conservation and enterprise and culture.
Two winning entries will be chosen for the competition, each receiving an iPod Shuffle donated by Aberdeen IT company, Indigo Technologies.
The deadline for entries to the competition is Saturday April 3.
Dr Claire Thorne Training & Outreach Officer for dot.rural said: “The myTech Challenge aims to get people thinking about the way technology has the power to transform our lives.
“We’re inviting ideas for new technological concepts in four areas – healthcare, transport, conservation and enterprise and culture - and would encourage entrants to come up with the most innovative, forward thinking, and creative concepts imaginable – the wackier the better!
“Children and adults of all ages are invited to enter and you can post as many submissions as you wish.
“When entrants visit the website - www.digital-rural.org/mytech - they will also have the opportunity to learn more about the research being conducted by dot.rural into how advances in digital technologies could transform rural communities in the future.”
